General Description

The circuit protocol describes transmission negotiations and the end to end signalling capability when one or several RTs are on TCH (engaged in a voice call). A voice call uses one TCH per cell involved in the call. Individual RTs shall switch to TCH only when ordered by the SwMI (private call) or on SwMI indication (group communication) (see PAS 0001-3-1 [4]) and shall remain there until the SwMI asks them to quit TCH. This phase is called "voice session". One voice session includes one or more transmissions:

RT switch to TCH

RT leave TCH

transmission 1

trans. 2

transmission 3

Voice session

Figure 1: Voice session The voice session ends for private calls; at the end of the call (see PAS 0001-3-1 [4]). for group communications, When the SwMI starts to permanently broadcast the D_GROUP_IDLE application message on SCH, all the RTs present on the channel shall switch immediately to CCH. This procedure is described in PAS 0001-3-1 [4].

The SwMI shall end the voice session in the following two cases: The SwMI/RT interface is in "Channel free" status for more than T seconds; The voice session is open for more than T' seconds.

T = T610 (group communication), T620 (emergency group communication), T630 (private call). T' = T611 (group communication), T621 (emergency group communication), T631 (private call). 4.1 Physical Level Organisation on TCH

A traffic channel is a duplex radio channel with 2 physical radio channels in opposite directions. The physical uplink TCH is a single VCH. The physical downlink traffic channel TCH is divided into 3 logical channels (see PAS 0001-2 [2]): SCH_TI Signalling channel for transmitter interruption ( by stealing); SCH Signalling channel by stealing; VCH Voice channel.

SCH and SCH_TI are constructed by stealing VCH channel blocks. Their use is described in PAS 0001-3-3 [6]. Three types of blocks are conveyed on VCH: non transparent data blocks, transparent data blocks and voice blocks:

Page 10 PAS 0001-3-4: Version 1.1.2 (Transparent) Voice blocks transport voice frames which are processed by the vocoder; Non transparent data blocks transport UI_VCH type data frames (see PAS 0001-3-3 [6]) conveying voice application layer LSDU; Transparent data blocks transport end-to-end data frames (from RT to RT) without any action on the SwMI part ; this transparent mode may be used for end to end signalling purposes in voice sessions.

Transparent and non transparent data blocks shall be characterised by the use of two associated signalling bits (ASB) defined in PAS 0001-3-3 [6]. These two bits (X and Y) shall be present in each uplink or downlink "voice" or "data" block except in SCH_TI blocks. On TCH: 4.2 The transmitting RT shall set the X bit to 1 in end-to-end blocks; it shall not be modified by the SwMI; The Y bit is reserved and shall be set to 0.

Voice Protocol Control


Voice control frame structure (UI_VCH)

UI_VCH is a single block frame, the format is defined in PAS 0001-3-3 [6]. - "Address field" contains a level 2 address derived from: sender terminal's TTI for uplink frames or; the call's CGI for uplink frames; "all terminals" TTI for all downlink frames.

- "Command field" UI_VCH type frame defined in PAS 0001-3-3 [6]. - "Information field" contains 3 octets (circuit protocol LSDU). - "FCS field" is defined in PAS 0001-3-3 [6]. 5.2 Broadcast / Selection Principle

The RTs shall communicate in half-duplex mode. All the TCHs involved in the call shall broadcast identical information. It is a SwMI element which shall supply the information (broadcast function). The information shall include:

Figure 3: Selection / Broadcast function. 5.3 5.3.1 Procedures SwMI/RT link states

The SwMI/RT link status is defined on the radio interface by the kind of LSDU broadcast on the downlink VCH. There are three possible states: Channel free: the SwMI shall permanently broadcast the "D_CHANNEL_FREE" LSDU. Forced listening; the SwMI shall broadcast the "D_FORCED_LISTENING" LSDU. Channel busy: the SwMI broadcasts either voice frames or other LSDUs according to the procedure RT procedure for transmission request D_START_SPEECH or

5.3.2

The SwMI shall periodically inform all the participants in the D_VOICE_STUFFING LSDU of the selected RT's "TRANSMIT_PRIORITY".

Until any RT gets to know the selected RT's transmission priority, this RT shall consider the selected RT's transmission priority to be identical to its own priority On PTT request, RT shall start a timer corresponding to the maximum delay during which the request can be transmitted. Then, it shall wait for either a D_CHANNEL_FREE LSDU or D_VOICE_STUFFING or D_START_SPEECH LSDUs with a lower transmission priority ; in these cases, RT shall cancel the timer and send its transmission request with the U_START_SPEECH LSDU immediately followed by voice or transparent data frames.

Page 13 PAS 0001-3-4: Version 1.1.2 The U_START_SPEECH LSDU shall contain its transmission priority. The RT shall not change to receive mode. The RT ignores whether it is selected. On timer expiry, the PTT request is lost ; PTT shall be pushed again to run another request. The timer duration is 200ms. 5.3.3 End of transmission (Transmitting RT side) A transmitting RT must always listen to SCH_TI. If the block is present and if the RT is concerned with the TTI in the SCH_TI block, the RT shall immediately cease to transmit transparent frames (voice or data). The selected RT shall set an anti-gossip time-out (T600) when transmission rights are granted and shall stop transmitting when T600 expires. Transmissions shall also be stopped either by the user.

When transmission is to be stopped, the selected RT shall send successive U_END_SPEECH_1, U_END_SPEECH_2, U_END_SPEECH 3 LSDU then shall switch to receive mode.

Figure 6: RT Selection by the SwMI If the SwMI receives a transmission grant request when another RT is "selected", it shall compare the transmission priorities of the two RTs: The transmission priority of the new RT is higher than that of the selected RT, the SwMI shall select the new RT. The transmission priority of the new RT is lower or equal to that of the selected RT, the SwMI shall ignore the request.

The D_START_SPEECH LSDU containing the "selected RT"'s transmission priority is then broadcast on all the VCHs in the coverage area, followed by the voice or transparent data frames.

Page 14 PAS 0001-3-4: Version 1.1.2 Each voice or transparent data frame not received by the SwMI (errored frame) shall be replaced by the D_VOICE_STUFFING LSDU on the downlink VCHs. 5.3.5 Transmission delay s in the coverage area

The voice or transparent data frames transmitted by the selected RT are received by other RTs with a delay due to the link path. The delay varies from one cell to another and depends on the number of elements employed to ensure coverage. There are at least two errored frames per superframe (when the transmitter changes back to listen to SCH_TI). The SwMI shall supply all the participants with the method for calculating positions in the superframe of the 2 D_VOICE_STUFFING LSDU; Additionally to selected RT's priority, Each downlink D_START_SPEECH and D_VOICE_STUFFING LSDU shall contain the information element NUM_BLOCK. 5.3.6 End of transmission (SwMI side)

When the SwMI receives one of the three U_END_SPEECH_n LSDUs, it shall end the selected RT transmissions. The SwMI should also end transmissions when the rate of errored received voice or transparent data frames exceeds a certain threshold (typically 50%). In order to end the selected RT transmissions, the SwMI shall start send N600 D_FORCED_LISTENING LSDUs then shall permanently broadcast the D_CHANNEL_FREE LSDU.

End To End Signalling


Principle

The information to send is delivered in transparent mode instead of voice frames for the selected RT. The use of this capability may cause voice disruptions which are fully linked to the frequency of such messages and to the choices of sending moments. The possible loss of frames, due to radio or link problem or when the transmitter changes back to listen to SCH_TI for example shall also be considered to choose a good compromise. As soon as an RT receives an indication by SCH_TI to force the end of transmission, it shall stop to transmit end to end signalling. 6.2 End to end signalling frame structure (UI_CD)

UI_CD is a single block, bi-block or multi-block UI_CD frames ; the information field is limited to 59 bytes. The address field in the UI_CD frame shall be "All STs". See UI_CD field description in PAS 0001-3-3 [6] for UI_CD frame format

Page 19 PAS 0001-3-4: Version 1.1.2 6.3 6.3.1 Procedures End to end transmitting

To send "end to end information", the RT shall execute a procedure for transmission request (see voice control protocol) and replace one or several voice frames with end to end signalling frames. 6.3.2 6.3.2.1 End to end reception Talking Party Identification & Key partitioning

On reception of TP_ADDRESS or TP_ALIAS, the RT may display the current transmitting RT identity (alias or address). Additionally, the LSDU contains characteristics of a specific key ; this key is applied in order to cipher the voice frames ; unauthorised participants shall not be able to understand the voice communication even if they are in the same group communication. (see PAS 0001-16-3) 6.3.2.2 Ambience listening

On reception of AMBIENCE_LISTENING LSDU with information field containing its own RFSI, the RT shall immediately acts likes if the user has done a PTT request. The RT shall execute a transmission request (see voice control protocol) with the transmission priority and duration furnished by AMBIENCE_LISTENING LSDU. At the end of the specified delay (or anti gossip) time out, the RT shall return in reception mode. Depending on the value of the MODE information element from the AMBIENCE_LISTENING TSDU, the RT shall: 6.4 6.4.1 6.4.2 the RT shall return in reception mode as soon as the user strikes any key. ignore any key stroke from the user END TO END Protocol LSDU and parameters Parameters LSDU descriptions
